Delirium is a syndrome of transient, reversible cognitive dysfunction. It is very common, affecting up to 30% of older hospital inpatients, either at admission or during their hospital stay. It is associated with high rates of mortality, complication and institutionalisation, and with longer lengths of stay. Its pathophysiology is unclear; it may in part be due to the effect of increased cortisol release in acute illness, or it may reflect a sensitivity of cholinergic neurotransmission to toxic insults. Older terms for delirium, e.g. acute confusion or toxic confusional state, lack diagnostic precision and should be avoided.
